I think what Niels is saying is just for CentOS Storage Sig, not the
overall release, atleast that's what I understood from him.

Unfortunately we didn't get to hit this issue before the tagging was
done. IMO, if our test suit would have had a test where glusterd is
restarted post taking the snapshot this issue should have caught at the
development phase itself :(
